Overweight with high blood pressure. High SGPT levels. Do I have liver disease?

I am 41 male, my weight is almost 125 kg. I am using blood pressure medicine. recently i saw my SGPT levels increased but other liver enzimes like bilurubin are normal but on high side. I repeated the same test 8 months ago, where Doc suggested to do Hepatisis test. All Hep tests were also clear.

Please tell me wheather elevated SGPT level of 135 are dangerous?? or represent some other liver disease??.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
This is moderately elevated SGPT.It can mean nothing but also can be due to liver disorder.
Its elevation is common found in many disorders must most usualy is alcoholic, viral, autoimmune or toxic liver damage. The most common liver disorders is fatty liver which can be found in healthy people, but usually is resulting from elevated blood lipids, overweight and elevated blood sugar. If ultrasounds didnt find anything and viral markers are negative then you have no reason to be concerned. YOu should treat it by changing dieatary and lifestyle habbits. Do exercise, avoid alcohol,smoking, fats,fast food and carbonated drinks. Eat more fruit and vegetables, boiled meat and follow some of hepatoprotective diets. Findings usually improves on such measures. If not, then some medicines can be presribed, but I suggest to go step by step. If you dont have any symptoms then this is just slight and reversible liver damage.
Wish you good health.

SGPT is the marker for the liver injury , which is raised in a variety of conditions effecting the liver.

The most common reasons for raised SGPT are:

Viral Hepatitis B and C
Alcoholic Hepatitis
Autoimmune Disorders

As you are having persistent raised levels, I will advise you to go for some investigations including the ultrasound of the liver to see the status of liver and biliary tree.

Hope it helps.
